We look forward to welcoming you to Kielder Water & Forest Park. Please see our Know Before You Go page for lots of useful information including important details on access to routes following storm damage.
Whether you want to attend an organised event or explore in your own time, Kielder is the place to be.
Bring your bike and discover the art works along the lakeside way or pop into Kielder Waterside and find out which activities are on – from archery to mini golf there is plenty to do for the whole family. You can also visit the Birds of Prey centre, enjoy a coffee and pick up a gift from the Kielder Waterside shop or stay a while at Kielder Castle and see if you can spot a red squirrel.
As well as this we host events throughout the Park all year round - whether your passion is fishing, wildlife, mountain biking, walking, star gazing, rallying, working forests, culture or arts.
While the Observatory hosts a huge range of events throughout the year, there are also other venues throughout Kielder Water and Forest Park which hold star gazing events. Please use the search facility to the right to find all events on offer and start your big adventure now!
